Our Possum Magic round robin is coming to an end and the quilts are being returned to their original owners. You can see progress photos of them all on the Possum Magic tab at the top of this page.

The final quilt that I worked on was Sharon's. Each of the quilts was different to the others, but some how this one seemed even more different. For a start there was a lot of white in it, which is very different to what I'm used to. It was also filled with many tiny pieces of fabric. I'm not one for taking the easy way out, but I've also never used that many tiny pieces in a quilt.

Alice and I decided to share the last border because the quilt was getting quite large. Sharon had made her original centre back in June 2014, and then 5 other people had already added their borders before the quilt got to us. We just had to put on a final border. This is what it looked like when we received it from Rebecca (One Wee Bird).
We added a crazy mosaic type border which complemented the rest of the quilt nicely. There was plenty of white in our border, but some colour too.
The quilt is now back in northern Queensland, Australia with Sharon, and she's thinking about hand quilting it one day when the temperatures get cooler - she could be waiting some time!
I'll be writing more Possum Magic posts over the next few days.
